http://auto.bazos.cz/inzerat/51051203/Volkswagen-T3-Bus-Malibu.php

Price is $7500

This is the translation of the text:
Buy a VW Bus T3 Malibu with bodywork Carthago, RV 1990 1.6 TD, 5 . Fridge, stove, 2 sleeping Toilet, swivel seat heating. Mileage 325,000 km, overall very good condition. New & imported STL

My girlfriend fell so much in love with my hightop T3 that she wants one for herself... so this would be for her.
My main concern is the mileage. Of course, who knows what the rust situation is like but looks decent, and looks like original paint.

Personally, I'd go for the second one, AFTER checking it over for body rust!
If you can be sure of rustless-ness, everything else is a simple fix!
I know you can find everything you need for it there, because I buy alot of Czech and Polish stuff.
Change the fuel lines!

My only hesitation for the second one is that is it a petrol engine... Diesel is more fuel efficiant and mechanically durable so I have been told. But... maybe for a Czech girl a gasser might be more feminine? Smile
